  • using mp3s with headunit, menu help needed

    using my dvds full of MP3's is a bit difficult as there arent any menus so its just a list of 1000tracks.

    I copied them using nero from my pc with all the folders. I put all albums in seperate folders and they copied over like that on the DVD but when i put them in my player its just a big list. This is a real pain when i want to search quickly through the list to get to a good track/album.

    is there any software to make menus like proper dvds so i could select from a list of albums then it would just display a list of tracks for that album.

    i dont know if ive explained myself very well, but basically want a tree like configuration where the user selects the album first, then the track. Is this possible

    thanks and please share the infinate wisdom that seems to be on this site

    MP3 playback varies greatly from manufacturer to manufacturer. I reccomend getting hold of the handbook for your particular head unit and reading the section of mp3 disk layout... some truncate anything over 8+3characters, others only list numeric directories, others requires special directory structures (eg. max of 2 sub directories and 30 files per directory).

      There's software to build "audio DVDs", which are supposed to be compliant with real DVD menus.
